Transitional Blue Living Room With Velvet Sofa and Chair

Designer SuzAnn Kletzien used striking and harmonious patterns throughout this transitonal blue living room, including neutral and dark navy velvets, subtle gold and blue stripes and a mineral-inspired pattern. A rich blue velvet fabric with a floral pattern was used to cover the custom-made ottoman, complete with a removable wood serving tray.

Neutral Velvet Sofa with Blue Throw Pillows

Designer SuzAnn Kletzien included elements of blue –– her client's favorite color –– throughout her design plan, as seen in these throw pillows. A navy velvet pillow and blue-and-white upholstered pillow trimmed in the same navy fabric pair beautifully with the taupe velvet sofa.

Transitional Navy-Blue Living Room With Balcony Access

Sitting behind a taupe velvet sofa in this living room is a starburst mirror collage positioned on a navy accent wall. Designer SuzAnn Kletzien also reupholstered an egg chair in a navy velvet fabric and had a custom ottoman made with a removable tray in the center. Glass doors provide access to the condo's balcony area.

Transitional Navy-Blue Living Room With Mirror Collage

Designer SuzAnn Kletzien's client requested a starburst mirror in the design plan, so Kletzien positioned a starburst mirror collage on a navy accent wall in the living room. She also reupholstered an egg chair in a deep blue velvet fabric and had a custom ottoman built with a removable tray in the center for drinks and snacks.

Traditional Mirrored Oval Table With Decanter

The living room features a mirrored oval end table trimmed in gold, the perfect metallic accent to the deep blue hue used throughout the space. The table provides just enough room for a dramatic gold lamp and a small glass hard-liquor decanter with a matching pair of glasses.

Transitional Dining Room With Round Dining Table

Designer SuzAnn Kletzien was sure to include pops of her client's favorite color –– blue –– throughout her chic, modern design. Turquoise vases at the center of the round dining table provide a bold touch in the otherwise neutral dining room, which includes a muted traditional wallpaper, pale blue dining chairs and a modern gold chandelier.

Glass Bookshelf With Modern Sculpture Pieces

This simple glass bookshelf not only houses the homeowner's favorite books, but also showcases several sculpture pieces, such as a metallic owl and black bookends shaped like a hand. The addition of a plant adds a touch of greenery.
